Missed It: CAB Announces Programming For 2014 Festival

imageCAB programming director Paul Karasik sent out a release yesterday about the Comic Arts Brooklyn programming for this year. This is the first time that well-liked show (I'm conflating it with its spiritual predecessor BCGF in order to make this observation) has split its programming away from the main, traditionally commerce-driven show and into its own day and venue.

The programs start at 11 AM on November 9 at the Wythe Hotel. It looks like another winnning line-up from Karasik, who also did last year's well-received same-day effort. Highlights include an Art Spiegelman/Roz Chast conversation, an interview with the largely reclusive Richard McGuire on his new book edition of Here, and a Q&A with Raymond Pettibon.

You can read the full line-up here.

The convention announced with its release that they'll be emptying the hall between each presentation, which I guess means if you want to do a specific hour of programming you can line up just for that event.

I'm really interested to see how this goes. There are only a few ways to organize a show that haven't been tried to death, and splitting your programming in the hope that many of the cartoonists that are exhibiting can thus attend is certainly one of the less-explored options. Also, one-days shows becoming two-day shows is a trend to follow for the next 12-24 months.
